How do I make better use of my qualities? What are my qualities anyway? What aspect should I develop? How do I deal with a manager who doesn't think my way? How could I gain my colleague's support? And my management? How can I achieve my goals in a smart way? How to convert my business vision into action?
Is this still the right job for me? I have a good career and position, but I am missing something, but what? What is the right next step for me? How do I find my dream job? My job has expired, now what? Who's waiting for me at all? I can get promoted, but am I ready for it? Should I do it? Or should I switch to something completely different?
Do I really enjoy what I do? I miss something in my job, but what? I'm quite successful, but I get less and less energy out of this: now what? Do I still fit into this organization? And does it still fit me? The organization and market are changing: how do we find suitable people? What about succession planning?
How do we shape our organization for the world of tomorrow? How do I organize focus on my strategic goals? What team composition do we choose? How do I develop this group into a high-performance team? How do I find the right talents? Who will be my successor? Change management: how do I do that?
As business coach and consultant I help people and organizations develop more job satisfaction and effectiveness. By assisting them on their journey to find answers to the above questions. In a co-active way: together getting things moving. Co-Activation.
As a sailor I sometimes use a metaphor of a sailing trip for this approach: ship, routing plan, crew, compass, navigation, options, steering and sail trim. On the way to a new horizon? I'll be glad to step on board!
